Issue 10 years green card instead of conditional green card

17 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

After waiting for so long, I finally got my green card. However I'm confused because I thought I would received the 2 years conditional green card, but the expiration date of the green card I received says it's expires in 10 years. 

 

I came to US with a K1 visa, got married in August 2018 and filled for AOS in October 2018. We have been married for 8 months. 

 

Is that normal? 

I really don't want to request for another green card and have to wait another 6 months :( 

 

Help please!

You definitely have to have it corrected, but, it will be free of charge since it is their error.  Since your marriage is less than 2 years, you are only entitled to a 2 year conditional card, and will need to file ROC in 21 months. 

 

Agree with above - keep a copy of front and back. 

 

At least you know you did nothing wrong :)

Before you send in the wrong card get the USCIS verbiage removed from your ss card. Update your drivers license as well. 

Use only ss card and dl for employment purposes. 

The correct GC will take at least 6 months. You can file online but you have to send in the wrong card as well or they’ll reject your filing (so make plenty of front and back copies - or scan).

I can legal work even though I don't have the green card in hands? I thought I would need to show my green card as proof of permanent residency

If you follow the advice above with SS and the DMV, for employment purposes, you will be fine because an i9 form requires a SS card and driver license.  Additionally, even though the card has the wrong date, it was not an error in status.  You are a PR and therefore able to work :)

How do I do this?

Make an appointment at your local USCIS office before you return the card and file the I90 

Take your passport  and the  incorrect GC and request a stamp so you can then use that as status evidence. Then send off the GC and I90

Help please!

create an online account if you don't already have it you can file the I-90 form online upload the evidence and a copy of the front and back of the card and upload that also, wait for biometrics appointment, and yes they will do it again.

 

my husband entered after our 2 year date and got a conditional card when he should have gotten a 10 year card. we are 35 days from his biometric appointment still no new green card but he has the wrong one he was sent, they will eventually ask for it back, wait for them to send you that correspondence.

 

but you can file for replacement online.

Any idea how long it would take to get it corrected?

I haven't received an EAD or advance parole, so does that mean I won't be able to work? 

This exact same thing happened to me. It took 12 months to get new, correct permanent resident card.

 

To cover this period I was able to get a stamp in my passport at an Infopass appointment. I wish I had known about the DMV trick above at the time!
